Ultimate Direction Access 600 Running Belt

Access 600

5k Finished!

I am always looking for new ways to carry gear and stay hydrated while running.  For most of my runs, a vest is overkill, but I still need something to carry my phone, a few snacks, and some water.  Ultimate Direction has a new line up of running belts called the Access 600 that I think will fill this need in my running gear quiver.  I will be reviewing this running belt over the next few months.  Read on for my initial thoughts.

I have used the RunLites Sling II over the past couple months while walking and running on the Mississippi River Levy in New Orleans and while night hiking on the trails of Buccaneer State Park on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.  The lights have provided ample light for walking at night, are comfortable to wear and seem to have a pretty decent run time.   Read on for my full update.

For most of the last month, it was not the most suitable weather to test an outdoor item due to rain and cool temperatures. When the weather improved, I got quality time using the GCI Pico Arm chair. When the weather was hot, I could answer a question from a local reader in my review. I will get into comfort and more on the chair back storage Caddy. To read more please click here.

Water Filtration has come a long way since I started backpacking in the days of iodine tablets and Polar Pure.  Even the days of pumps might be long gone.  Katadyn has introduced the hand held water filtration called the BeFree.  I am fortunate to be reviewing this cool new water filtration device over the next few months.  Read on for my initial thoughts.

I have been running marathons and ultra-marathons since 1998 and I have refined my nutrition so that I understand what works for me.  This is a blessing and a curse because there are so many new products that launch each year to help runners achieve their best.  33Shake is one such company.  They make Chia Energy Gels and Pre/Post workout shakes.  I will be reviewing both of their products.  Read on for my initial thoughts.
